The Golden Backpack Program is looking for summer volunteers to help at its Fresh Food Co-op located at New Hope Community Church, 16800 W. 9th Ave., Golden 80401. Twice a week the Co-op receives rescue food from local grocery stores in the Denver area (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Sprouts). This food needs to be unloaded from the delivery truck, sorted, date/quality checked, and stocked onto the shelves. You must be 12 years or older to participate.

Buffalo Bill Days - Golden Police Department BBQ - July 27

For the past several years now, the Golden Police Department Chaplains have provided lunch and dinner for members of the PD on Saturday during Buffalo Bill Days. It’s a nice break for those on duty during this community event and a wonderful way to show our appreciation for their service. We need lots of “sides” and desserts to compliment the main dish.

To participate, go to My Calvary at https://calvarychurchgolden.ccbchurch.com

The Salvation Army Back to School Shopping Spree - August 6

The Golden Service Extension Unit (Golden SEU) of The Salvation Army is once again sponsoring this shopping event for 50+ children in our community. Volunteer “Chaperones” are needed to do one-on-one shopping with a child for clothes, shoes, underwear, etc. The event will take place at the Target Store at Denver West.

We also need money to cover the cost of the shopping. If you would like to sponsor a child for $75, write a check to “Calvary Church” and note: “SA Shopping”.
